Drinks Americas Streamlines Operations And Launches Investor Relations Effort

Stocks in this article: DKAM

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 2, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Drinks Americas Holdings, Ltd., ("Drinks" or the "Company") (OTCBB:DKAM), a leading developer and marketer of beverage products, consolidated its administrative and distribution operations at the Los Angeles facilities of Worldwide Beverage Imports, LLC ("WBI") on Sept. 7, 2012, and engaged RedChip Companies, Inc. ("RedChip") to lead its investor relations efforts.

"The consolidation of operations at WBI's West Coast national shipping and receiving center streamlines our operations, reduces overhead, and creates tremendous efficiencies for our Company," stated Federico Cabo, chairman of the board for Drinks. "With this move, we can expedite order processing, providing faster service to our distributors and their customers. We also believe we will realize operational overhead savings of up to 45% from the consolidation, which will translate straight to the bottom line, creating additional value for our shareholders."

"We are also pleased to announce the engagement of RedChip," continued Mr. Cabo. "As our operational performance continues to improve, we believe providing transparent communication with our current and prospective shareholders is a necessary and timely step in our corporate development. We chose RedChip based on their strong track record of producing results for emerging growth companies."

Dave Gentry, president of RedChip, stated, "With several well-known brands, including its popular KAH Tequila and venerable Rheingold Beer, and impressive growth prospects in the $22.7 billion spirits market and $43.7 billion beer market, Drinks represents a tremendous opportunity for our network of retail and institutional investors. We are excited to initiate an investor relations program for Drinks."
